Gratitude and Appreciation
A letter to the Hospital Administrator
underwent treatment at the hospital
I deem it a pleasure in writing this letter, in grateful acknowledgment
of all the medical services rendered to me during my stay
at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences,
Bangalore, from July 25th to August 2nd 2001 during which
I had undergone neuro surgery for the removal of a tumour
My nine days stay at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher
Medical Sciences was a divine holiday. In fact I never had
the feeling that I was a patient. In a surgery it is fear
that haunts you more than the diseases. But here I must admit
that from the time of my admission the fear had gone and a
subtle peace of mind transcended on me. This state of mind
is to be experienced to be believed.
Although I have profound faith in God, the
moment I entered this divine medical centre, I began to admire
Baba for his selfless service to mankind, through his
philosophy of' Love all, Serve all'. Every person admitted
to this Institute, however poor or rich, is taken care of
without any discrimination.
The medical service is supreme. A missionary zeal can be seen
in every individual serving this Institute and this clearly
shows the greatness of this Divine soul, Sri Sathya Sai Baba
who infuses such dynamism into every person serving here.
In today's medical profession it is rare to come across a
noble soul like Dr A S Hegde, who is the Head of the Department
Neuro Sciences here. Dr Hegde and his team are rendering yeoman
service to the cause of neuro patients who come here from
all parts of the country.
In my short association with Dr Hegde, I have found him to
be a person of great humanity, patience and one who induces
confidence in his patients. He is also a very popular and
greatly sought after neuro-surgeon. May God bless him and
his family. May he also train more such good surgeons, who
will be proud to say they were associated with Dr Hegde.
During my stay, I had the opportunity to interact with most
of the patients
and their attendants, in my ward. I noticed that they were
religious backgrounds. Without any exception, all of them
agreed, that this
place was a Temple of Medication.
My family and I will always be indebted to this Institute.
With deep gratitude and warm regards.
